GNOME-To-Do synchronization?


I'm trying to figure out the best way to synchronize GNOME-To-Do across multiple machines. Support for todoist seems to be ending and doesn't show up in "Online Accounts" anyway, and todo.txt integration has been buggy. So I have a pCloud account and decided to use it. I set up links redirecting anything in the following three directories to corresponding directories in a synchronized pCloud directory:

~/.local/share/evolution/tasks/
~/.cache/evolution/tasks/
~/.config/evolution/tasks/

But it isn't working. Changes made on one machine are still not reflected on another machine. Anyone know what I'm missing? Using GNOME 3.28.2 on Fedora 28.

how do the local machines' applications know where to look for the synced files?
are you mounting the containing directories to the local filesystem?

Actually, the whole thing is local. On each computer, I have a local directory at ~/Sync/To Do/ which contains all the directories targeted by my links. pCloud simply lifts each machine's Sync folder into the cloud and then synchronizes their contents (same as Dropbox). The instance of GNOME-To-Do that I run on each machine is therefore only looking for something it its own /home directory.

so it cannot know about what "that cloud thingy" is doing!
it works correctly, because it always accesses its own local copy.
only the cloud has the most up-to-date copy, but no instance of gnome todo actually accesses it.

btw, i think the best way to go about this is to have only ONE todo list (in "the cloud"), and mount that locally to your filesystem(s).

and btw2, i do not know what "pCloud" is.
